We then made our way to Shipstal Point opposite Brownsea Island and as we stepped onto the shore line a Little Egret was busy feeding on small fish from the pools at the waters edge.
In fact it was so engrossed that it did not mind a couple of photographers (including me) and I was able to get some confiding shots. The light was gorgeous and bright and made for a good session. I took about 70 shots in 10 or 15 minutes and I am quite pleased with the results. I have photographed these birds a good few times now but I like these best. many shots had fish in the Egrets bill so the pickings seemed very good, only small fry mind, I would need a plateful!
On the water was a small group of Red Breasted Mergansers, top birds, I only managed a record shot of these.
